Vrije Universiteit Brussel participates in the European Alternative Fuels Observatory

Porche VUB

How many electric cars are sold every year in Belgium? More or less compared to the year before? Is Tesla the most popular PEV car in Belgium? How do we compare with Germany and France?

From now on you can find all relevant information about the electric vehicles market in Europe on a single portal. The European Association for Electromobility has launched the EAFO portal www.eafo.eu.

Tesla and Porsche popular in Belgium

An example? The 5 most popular electric and hybrid cars in Belgium are:

1. Tesla Model S (18,2%)

2. Porsche Cayenne PHEV (18,1%)

3. Volvo XC90 PHEV (10,7%)

4. BMW i3 Rex (6,1%)

5. Volkswagen Golf GTE (5,6%)

Focus on electricity, hydrogen and natural gas

The EAFO project will be the new reference for information on development and deployment of alternative fuels’ vehicles, infrastructure and incentives as well as related relevant topics in the different EU countries.

The short-term focus is on battery electric, hybrid and fuel cell vehicles. Natural gas and other alternative fuels will also be covered in a second stage.

The Observatory will help support the market development of alternative fuels in the EU and be a key tool for the implementation of Directive 2014/94/EU on the deployment of recharging and refuelling stations.
